The Get Down: Part II (Trailer)

April 7th can’t came fast enough.  The trailer starts out like an episode of Inside the Music, following The Get Down Brothers in their transition into the mainstream all while clashing with  disco.  Netflix describes it as:

“A mythic saga of dreams, desire, soul and sound, The Get Down chronicles the epic musical evolution from disco to hip hop that defined 1970s New York City – as told by the relationships, struggles, triumphs, and artistry of the South Bronx teens who saw it through.” 

 Watch the trailer below.
